Carbon rims for our hand-built wheels

One of the biggest bike performance improvers is hand-built wheels. We build top-quality wheelsets with the best components. Our rims are sourced direct from the factory, and we only use sapim stainless spokes and brass nipples. We tune ours builds to your riding style and personal specification.

Don’t buy off-the-shelf, pop in and have a chat.

Weekend Rutland Cycling

What a place Rutland is to cycle – highly recommended. We cycled over on Friday, tested out the Rutland forest trails on Saturday, and circumnavigated Rutland Water on Sunday. 110 miles, mostly off road- absolutely wonderful when mixed up with friends.

Redshift ShockStop Stem

We have been using these ‘suspension’ stems on our own bikes for a while now. If you want to reduce road / trail buzz and reduce the shock of bumps then these will work for you. Highly reccomended. We will do the fitting and help you to choose the right seetings / elastomers for you.
